Gartner, Inc. has revealed its top predictions for IT organisations and IT users for 2015 and beyond. Gartner’s top predictions for 2015 begin to examine a shift in the age old relationships between man and machine due to the emergence of digital business.
“For some time now, there has been an ongoing shift in the roles machines play in our everyday lives,” said Daryl Plummer, vice president and Gartner Fellow. “Compute-based machines are now being used to create an ever expanding variety of experiences that extend human endeavours. Machines are taking on more human characteristics in order to affect a more personalised relationship with human beings and we find ourselves contemplating a near-term future of a world in which machines and humans are co-workers, and possibly even co-dependents.”
